AeroLEDs SunSpot 36 Equinox is the industries first true dual function LED Landing and Taxi light. In landing mode, it will output a 20°X20° bright white beam angle for high-speed take-offs and landings to greatly improve visibility both on the ground and in the air from up to 30 miles away. While in taxi mode, the light produces a wider beam spread (20° X45°) that outputs a solid and evenly distributed light pattern for unmatched illumination of the runway/taxiway without impairing the vision of other pilots. All lights in the SunSpot Equinox Series come standard with integrated Pulse or WigWag feature. This feature takes advantage of an LEDs ability to illuminate instantaneously, providing a very immediate and distinct visual cue to other aircraft.
This increased recognition, even in broad daylight, potentially reduces the risk of midair collisions and bird strikes. As with all AeroLEDs products, the SunSpot Equinox consumes less power, is not affected by vibration and outputs a solid, even light beam that provides exceptional color rendering. The SunSpot 36 Equinox replacement LED’s utilize the existing PAR36 mount and electrical connections, with only a double pole double throw (DPDT) switch needed for dual modes.

Cannot comment regarding satisfaction because A&P still working on installation, however, before you spend the money on this light with the dual taxi/landing feature, make sure you can find switches that reverse the current, as the light requires. My A&P has been unable to find such switches for my PA 28, therefore may have paid a lot of money for something I cant use........

Per the : shielded wire is always a better choice if you have other electronics or wires in the area.
Per install instructions: this light has a built in pulse function. An additional wire and switch will be required to enable pulse mode
